So, we've been busy... it's just that i have been extremely lazy in adding links here, so here goes.

As some players start to look towards the end of their careers, we take a look at Footballing Mortality, and those approaching it.
https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2018/12/11/mortality

Then we started our 2019 Pre-Season Player Power Rankings. Based on 2017-18 and weighted to reward the most recent season, here's our top 50.
50-41 https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2018/12/11/power5041
40-31 https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2018/12/11/power4031
30-21 https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2018/12/11/power3021
20-11 https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2018/12/11/power2011
And 10-1 https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2018/12/11/power1001

And finally, an article about the Adelaide Crows in 2019
https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2018/12/11/crowredemption

Thanks for reading - take care

So, we've got 20+ articles up since our last update, including insights into 12-14 of the JLT games. I don't want to list the links, as really... I'm lazy, but rest assured, there's the proverbial sh!t load of content on the site at the moment.

You'll only be mildly disappointed...

So, we've covered every game of the AFL season thus far, which is both surprising and incredibly time-consuming. You can link through our main link to find them, but here are some stand-alone articles in addition to those game reviews

Article on the game's best taggers
https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2019/04/08/taggers

Article on the way the Adelaide Crows are evolving as an organisation
https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2019/04/09/crowsexpansion

Which players' stocks are rising and falling?
https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2019/04/09/value

A little stats article, looking at a way to assess offensive output
https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2019/04/10/everest

And an article this morning about the resurgence of Port Adelaide
https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2019/04/12/gbupiesdogs-be575

Plus there's about a dozen new ones since I last posted here.

All the best

Wow... thanks for the kind words. They are really appreciated.

We're just trying to offer something a little different. Pretty pleased with the way it's going. Glad you're enjoying it.

Cheers.

Had our first crack at formatting a Player Power Rankings up until the end of Round Four in order to have a decent sample size. Will be updating every two weeks - haven't really seen anything like it for AFL, so thought I may as well have a crack.

Would be interested in any feedback.

Cheers

Heya all,

As per usual, game reviews of every game are up, we're currently working on our first rolling All-Australian team... and when I say "we" I mean the ever-reliable Matt Oman who is a workhorse for the site.

In the meantime, I've put together the second Mongrel Player Power Rankings.
https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2019/05/01/powerrankings2

Hoping you'll take the time to read and have your say on it - it's taken a lot of work and I'm committed to making this a fortnightly thing.

As always a heap of content since I last posted. Guessing somewhere in the 20-30 articles if you're plonked down and wanting something to read.

All the best.

Fourth installment of our Player Power Rankings is up.
https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2019/05/29/powerrankings4

Of course, there's been 18 games reviews and at least 15 articles since then on the site. we're building... even got a sponsor for the Power Rankings. We may end up being viable!

Anyway, you're always welcome.

Hey all,

Been a couple of weeks - just touching base and sharing a couple of pieces that may be of interest

Got Version Five of our Player Power Rankings up this evening
https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2019/06/13/powerranking5

Tom Basso has an exclusive on Port wearing the Prison Bars again from next year. Plenty of people on the Port board belittled him and claimed he was full of it, but while they sat on their computers or phones, he got off his backside, flew to Shanghai and got to sit and talk with people involved. Those people will owe him an apology soon enough. Anyway, article is here.
https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2019/06/12/barsareback

And our rolling All-Australian Team hit the site yesterday. we're pretty happy with it, but people love Ben Cunnington, so I don;t know what to tell ya...
https://themongrelpunt.com/afl/2019/06/11/mongrelaa12

All the best
